Since we installed irrigation the result on the HOYA'S is remarkable , twice as many flowers and more flowers on each bunch,

Hoya macgillvrayii , native to Cape York QLD.

MA This is its 2 nd flowering this dry season and they last so long on the vine. all the ones you see will have to be cut off when the frond they are on dies , its a mistake to plant vines on palms that loose their fronds ,better on trees that retain their branches . When these fronds have to go I'll plant some of the Hoya at the base of rainforest trees.

I have plenty of these Hoya for trade for any ORCHIDS that grow in QLD, Dendrobium, Oncidium, Vanda to name a few , there are plenty more.

That flower is so pretty. Those hoya cuttings you gave me are still growing, doing even better now that the weather has warmed up.
